What if you were waiting for someone at the airport, and instead picked up a stranger? Funny, charming and bubbling below the surface with the excitement that comes of unexpected possibilities, this Oscar-nominated, Ophir-winning gem might tempt us all to deviate from life’s expected script.

“A perfect cinematic experience.”

30 minutes. 2012. Director: Leon Prudovsky. With Ola Schur Selectar and Irit Kaplan. In Hebrew and Russian with English subtitles.
It’s 1991 in this hilariously clever mocumentary. Twelve-year-old Misha and his family are part of a massive Jewish immigration from the USSR to Israel, and he’s filming the whole thing—including the bureaucratic nightmare that unfolds when his great aunt dies right before they deplane.
